Uptick made its debut at the Samsung Developer Conference last November and is currently in beta. It’s a new wellness app from the minds at FitOrbit, which connects you with a personal trainer online through its membership service and mobile app. Uptick uses SAMI to bring your devices and their data together with you and your coach, in real-time.
Through the app, Uptick users can be matched with a human coach, set their health goals, and communicate with their trainer via text, video chat or photo messages. Uptick’s coach console tracks, records and displays data from any of your connected devices and apps, like your smartphone and a Jawbone UP.
Your data doesn’t just sit in the app. SAMI passes it in real-time from your devices to your coach, who can see the whole picture and give you real-time feedback—recommendations on your next workout, and what (or maybe where) to grab a bite afterward. Whether you want to improve your daily habits or train for a marathon, your data finds its way into good hands, and becomes a customized health plan.
The live demo below shows how a human coach can respond to your latest data and help you improvise on your plan, just by getting in touch through the app. (Starts at 15:42.)
